Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker’s wedding is reportedly being sponsored by luxury fashion house Dolce & Gabbana in a deal worth millions.
As we previously reported, the entire Kardashian-Jenner clan have been rocking archival D&G looks since they touched down in Portofino, Italy this week.
However, it looks like the Italian fashion brand, which was founded in 1985 by designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, has been closely involved in organising every aspect of the couple’s star-studded wedding.
According to MailOnline, staff from the brand’s HQ in Milan were sent to Portofino a few days ago to oversee preparations, and have been put up in local hotels.
The couple are set to wed at Castello Brown on Sunday, and as part of their deal guests will be ferried from their hotels to Portofino harbour this afternoon in a fleet of four speedboats, furnished with Dolce & Gabbana accessories.
Guests will then have to walk a short distance into a tunnel, where a lift with take them to Kourtney and Travis’ lavish hillside wedding venue.
Over the past few days, the bride and groom have been staying on a 213ft superyacht called Regina D’Italia, which is believed to be owned by Stefano Gabbana.
The yacht has been moored just offshore from Portofino, where the Kardashian-Jenner clan enjoyed a pre-wedding meal on Friday night at a local restaurant.
Capitalising on their rumoured sponsorship of Kravis’ wedding, a pop up Dolce & Gabbana shop opened three days ago beside the harbour in Portofino.
An insider working for Dolce & Gabbana told MailOnline: “The opening of the shop is entirely due to the wedding.”
The shop is expecting to remain open for three months, as they expect tourists to flock to the fishing village over the summer.
Kourtney will no doubt wear a dress designed by Dolce & Gabbana, as the 43-year-old wore a white D&G mini dress for their courthouse wedding.
Staff have been sworn to secrecy about the wedding, but insiders have claimed the castle has been sealed off since last Wednesday – after the couple hired it for a week.
Security cameras have also been erected around the venue to keep unwanted visitors away.
It’s understood Kourtney’s three children – Mason, 12, Penelope, 9, and Reign, 7 – will be involved in the wedding, after they were excluded from the couple’s engagement last year.
However, TMZ has reported that the father of her kids, Scott Disick, has not received an invitation to the ceremony.
The POOSH founder’s sisters Kim, Khloe, Kylie and Kendall will also be there for the big day, as well as Kourtney’s mother Kris Jenner and her boyfriend Corey Gamble.
Travis’ kids Landon, 18, Alabama, 16, and Atiana, 22, will also be in attendance, alongside his Blink-182 bandmates.
Before travelling to Italy, the couple legally wed at a courthouse in Santa Barbara last Sunday, just one month after their “practice wedding” in Las Vegas.
Kourtney, 42, and Travis, 46, exchanged vows with a small number of people in attendance, including her grandmother MJ and Travis’ father Randy as witnesses.

The pair started dating at the end of 2020, and got engaged last October on a beach in Santa Barbara.
Kourtney was previously in a longterm relationship with Scott Disick, whom she shares three kids with – Mason, 12, Penelope, 9, and Reign, 7.
Meanwhile, Travis shares two kids with his ex-wife Shanna Moakler – son Landon, 18, and daughter Alabama, 16.
He is also step-father to 22-year-old Atiana.
